    Quirky Food and Board Games: This New Cafe Is the best Hangout Spot


    Name: Fort001

    Location: Fort

    Cost: Rs 800 for two people

    Fort001 is a charming and a spacious cafe that is opened in Kala Ghoda, half a month back. Started off by Husband and wife, Harsh and Vidhi Parekh, the bistro has a vegetarian menu with a best dish being Jain dishes.

    It has a stunning stylistic theme – something that has been enlivened by the couple’s European holidays. It has a lot of regular light sifting in and is sufficiently enormous to oblige the suits from the Fort zone. It’s now turned into a prevalent office break home base and rolls out for an invigorating improvement.

    The menu is different with unique dishes like Usal Fondue and that’s only the tip of the iceberg. We particularly adored the hariyali pav bhaji {made from green tomatoes}. Likewise, pay special mind to Nutella pizza and Cookie Monster – baked fresh and on order topped with vanilla ice cream and chocolate sauce. The drinks menu includes mocktails and regular beverages. We recommend the chatka mary if you’re looking for something tangy.

    We believe it’s a crisp breath of progress for the office going individuals in Fort who’re generally encompassed by tall structures buildings and financial hubs.

    Got an hour long break? Head there and you can even play tabletop games.

    Name: Mini Pancakes and More

    Location: Bandra

    Cost: Rs 300 for two people

    Ten-Second Takeaway

    We’d get a kick out of the chance to take this minute to admit that we trespassed with a crate of delightful outlet from Mini Pancakes and More-an enchanting new outlet on Carter Road, by J-Fries.

    A recently opened pearl for dessert mates, mini pancakes a surprisingly positive turn of events for the individuals who despise the chaos that pancakes may accompany. With varieties, for example, the exemplary Nutella and banana, maple syrup, honey and butter, salted caramel with banana, strawberry cream cheese, cookie crumble and Twix on the menu, we think the place is a winner already. Priced starting INR 110, you can also call for an assorted box of 8 where they’ll send a mixed bag of their delish bite-sized pancakes. We like that the pancakes are liberally beaten and still figure out how to hold the first flavors. On the off chance that you are celebrating cheat day and are feeling excessively liberal, go for their additional garnishes like Nutella or frozen yogurt.


    They do shakes like chocolate Monster {INR 180}, unicorn {INR 160}, which is a bubble-gum based treat and caramel {INR 160} that is finished with popcorn. In the event that you would prefer not to match the hotcakes with something rich, go for their mock-tails beginning at INR 120.


    Copper Chimney Is Hosting A Biryani Festival Through July!



    Copper Chimney is one of Mumbai’s most evergreen haunts for Indian food. Try walking in for a weekend meal and you’ll know what we mean.

    What makes the Copper Chimney story special is their 4 decades in the food business, consistently serving authentic dishes using cooking techniques and recipes from undivided north India – right from Delhi to Peshawar.

    The tradition is limited to cooking, however, as the ambience and service follows modern trends, reflecting the restaurant’s tasteful origins. After hosting the recently successful Great Indian Kebab festival, Copper Chimney is now displaying its unique spices and ingredients for a range of biryanis from the north-west frontier region of India.

    The biryanis will be prepared using tender pieces of meat/vegetables, in long grains of saffron rice. The aromas and spices used will be special for its depth of flavour, offering a wider range to the keen biryani connoisseur.

    The ‘Dum’ technique of cooking will be employed, wherein a heavy-bottomed pot (handi) will house layers of delicately scented rice and meat. Sealed and cooked slowly over a low fire, such food offers deeper, richer, and infinitely more satisfying flavours.

    The preparation of these biryanis will be courtesy ‘Ustads’ – chefs with an in-depth knowledge of ingredients, decades of experience, and a nuanced understanding of textures and tastes. Each Ustad’s knowledge is translated in every Copper Chimney using tested techniques and fresh ingredients at the start of each day.

    The meaty biryanis we’re keeping an eye out for include Yakhani Chaap Biryani (tender mutton chops cooked Yakhani style with Kashmiri garam masala & caramelized onion), Chicken Roast Biryani (a Delhi-favourite recipe of chicken marinated in garlic-ginger paste and sundried chillies), Chicken Tikka Biryani (which involves a secret Punjabi Masala), and a unique Awadhi Seafood Biryani (a mix of prawns and fish, dum-cooked with fresh mint, coriander, green chilli, and lemon).

    Vegetarian options include a Kashmiri Paneer Biryani, which has a biryani pulao with fresh cottage cheese and nuts, and an Aloo-Makai Biryani with potato cubes and golden corn cooked in Basmati rice.

    The biryanis are served with a jeera-pudina raita, and we bet a ‘handi’ of biryani will only leave you craving for some more!

    Copper Chimney has been a pioneer in Indian cuisine and as they rightly put it, Copper Chimney, since 1972, Indian Food, Made Unforgettable.

    (Biriyani Specials until 24th July, Time: 12 to 4 PM and 7 PM to 11:30 PM, Worli Res – 42124212 /42124214, Pune – 020 -66890901)

    The most recent expansion to Kamala Mills’ diner POH is serving a mindfully-curated menu that serves the needs of a sedentary lifestyle. Yes, you read it right. Kamala Mill’s most recent offering, Progressive Oriental House is Wasabi head chef expert Vikramjeet Roy’s child. A quick chat with him, and we find that he’s figured out how to strike an adjust that few have figured out how to pull off. Taking food science and intertwining it with components to make something that is suited to the current way of life. In case you’re spending the day before a computer there’s no point devouring plentiful measures of carbs. That makes sense.

    The food served at POH is gluten-free, lacto-fermented and not fried. The herbs come from Roy’s alma mater, Don Bosco School, produced organically by the students. The stars of the menu served on the launch night were the red Thai curry-infused cakes, mini chicken croissant, steamed chicken tartar, corn tempura and asparagus croissant.

    The bar’s idea is interesting as well. The divider has various drawers mounted on it with various ingredients stored in them. In the event that you need to be a piece of this roulette, agree to accept it by asking your server or bartender. Based on your choice of the drawer, they’ll make a drink for you. The idea originates from a Japanese rationality.
